Stephen Holden on Betty Buckley

The NYTimes reviews the always-exciting Betty Lynn Buckley: “Ms. Buckley has never been in better voice, and her trio — Christian Jacob on piano, Peter Barshay on bass and Anthony Pinciotti on drums — has found a comfortable balance between her two, sometimes conflicting, aspects. One is an imperious Broadway diva, the other a quasi-jazz experimentalist, who, with her longtime musical sidekick, the pianist Kenny Werner, deconstructs songs from all over the place with the bold, occasionally reckless zeal of an explorer on the high seas without a compass.”
